Biologic's Anti-Support Surface helps transport stranded dolphins in Florida. This video, originally aired on WPTV NBC 5, shows how we go back to our roots and apply technology built for hospital/surgical surfaces to safely transport stranded dolphins off Florida's coast. A contract with the United States Navy was the basis of development for our current product line and still works effectively in transporting the most fragile of marine mammals: the dolphin.
